Margaritas Dos Group's story

Isabel is 53 years old and married. She did not have the opportunity to attend school. She has seven children, three of whom are in school. Isabel's business is raising pigs. She started out raising hens and now she has ten years experience raising animals. She has the support of her husband who is a salesman.

Isabel formed a group so that she could request a loan with which to buy pigs to raise and then sell when they have grown. The other two members of her group raise animals and make clothes. In the future, Isabel hopes to see her business become a farm for different kinds of animals.

In this group: Isabel, Josefina, Emiliana
